Fettucine with Steak & Avocado Sauce
- 8 ounces whole-grain fettuccine
- 1 avocado, peeled and pitted
- 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
- 1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt
- 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
- 1/2 pound sirloin beef, trimmed of fat and cut into 1/2-inch-thick strips
- 4 cloves garlic, chopped
- 2 Roma tomatoes, chopped
- 1/4 cup minced fresh cilantro
Cook fettuccine al dente according to package directions. Drain and set aside.
Meanwhile, in a large bowl, mash avocado using a fork until smooth. Stir in lime juice, yogurt and salt. Set aside.
In a large nonstick skillet on medium, add beef, and sauté for 2 minutes. Add garlic, and cook for 5 more minutes, or until strips are cooked through, turning occasionally. Drain beef and garlic in a fine-mesh strainer, then transfer to bowl with avocado mixture. Add fettuccine and toss.
Divide fettuccine mixture among 4 plates, then top each with a quarter of tomatoes and garnish with cilantro (if using).
